I’m not religious, but I recognize that “thoughts and prayers” are how some people express sympathy and compassion, no different from “my condolences”. Responding to it with snark just makes you look like an asshole.

I really hope for good news. Somehow I ended up in the foxx news comment section. What a wasteland of humanity. There needs to be a driver's license / certification for these things.

I avoid comments sections like the plague. Lots of human debris in those places

Wow, I thought with the Iridium Satellite constellation in place we were supposed to be able to track any plane, anywhere, thus never to loose a plane again......anywhere on Earth. Can someone explain?
